Types of Storm Damage
Storms ever number of weapons in their arsenal. There are so many things that your roof needs to defend itself from when being attacked by storms and any one of them has the ability to cause damage and compromise your roofs integrity. In the Charlotte area we typically see storms that produce the following types of damage:
The Carolinas are geographically situated within a weather band known for producing large hail. Hail damage is far more common and much more severe than many people realize. The smallest amount of hail is undeniably capable of damaging nearly any roof.
Depending upon the material that is on your roof hail damage comes in many forms, the most notable typically come in the form of dents, splits or cracks that adversely impact your roofs ability to shed water. Leaks invariably follow in the damage they cause is like a cancer. Furthermore, now that the protective coating on the shingle has been compromised ultraviolet radiation accelerates the deterioration of the roofing material.

Your roof is also in the direct line of high winds, which are known to cause many roofing problems. When high winds cause shingles to become loose or even become detached, more problems are sure to follow. High winds cause damage to roofs in Charlotte all the time. Regular maintenance and inspection after high winds are recommended.
Flying debris or limbs from a tree that a storm throws at your roof can cause tremendous damage. Oftentimes immediate assistance is required anytime debris comes in contact with the roof. If any tree limbs or debris fall onto your roof you will need to discuss this with a roofing professional at once to protect from further damage.
The most unfortunate aspect of any of these types of damage is that they don’t just stop at the roof. The roof is the first and last line of defense, once water makes its way in begins to damage many components of your home at once. Failure to address these issues will only lead to more damage and more expensive repairs in the future.
A damaged roof means that your home is now exposed to the weather. This type of exposure invariably leads to moisture infiltration spreads quickly throughout your house. High moisture content caused by water leaks are known to become a breeding ground for harmful molds and structural deterioration that will quickly spiral out of control. If this type of damage is not controlled wooden structural components will begin to warp and delaminate which causes permanent structural damage to your home.
Roof damage can also lead to debris entering your home and even pests and critters gaining entry into your attic, insulation and walls. As you already know, these types of problems cannot be fixed quickly or cheaply.
